New York Yankees

The latest on Masahiro Tanaka, from the NY Post's George A. King III and Dan Martin:

Masahiro Tanaka played catch with pitching coach Larry Rothschild and is slated for a bullpen session Saturday. Even if the Yankees run out of regular-season dates, Tanaka is going to pitch somewhere so the Yankees know where they stand with the right elbow that may or may not require Tommy John surgery.

"He will pitch somewhere, he has to throw," Girardi said of Tanaka, who hasn't worked a big league game since July 8 in Cleveland and last week complained of body soreness after the second simulated game. "You can't wait until next spring."

Oakland Athletics

The latest on Hiroyuki Nakajima, from MiLB.com's Bob Hards:

The RockHounds may have lost Hiro Nakajima for the duration of the series. The 'Hounds first baseman was injured while trying to make a play on Max Muncy's throw in the fifth. Hanser Alberto, running up the line on a sacrifice bunt attempt, collided with Nakajima as Hiro reached for the throw. While the collision was not "heavy," Nakajima injured his left (glove hand) wrist reaching for the throw and immediately left the game. He was still being examined at this writing.
